Vans has just hosted its latest Vans Park Series in Salt Lake City last weekend, and aside from all the phenomenal highlights, the organizers have also announced some amazing news: all skate parks built for the Series from now on will be donated to the local community.

“Everywhere needs more skate parks, and the fact that Vans is leaving a park at almost every stop means a lot for the next generation,” says pro-skater Ronnie Sandoval. “For whoever wants to jump on a skateboard, now they have something that they really want and can enjoy. It’s brand new, and it’s fresh — I just look forward to seeing what Vans can leave behind.” He added: “We’re gonna come back here next year, there’s gonna be locals and rippers here that have progressed over a year because of this skate park that Vans has left behind and I can’t fxcking wait.”

For those unfamiliar, the Vans Park Series is an annual park terrain skateboarding world tour founded in 2016. Its intention was to promote skate culture and increase participation whilst providing a foundation for more park terrain competitions in the future.
